I'd have to reread it to write a decent review, but reading interviews of common folk--instead of the leaders, statistics, or historical accounts filled with dates, treaties, and battles--is life-changing.

I'll have to get a copy for my personal library. ( )

The best way to read "The Good War" is to sit down with a cup of coffee and envision a WWII vet sitting across from you. He has a faraway look in his eyes and a slight tremor in his hands as he remembers best a single event that most likely changed his life forever. But, don't stop there. Now sitting across from you could be a businessman, a nurse, a dress maker, a dancer, a man who was just a child during the war and thought the battlefield was place of adventure. you might imagine someone who survived a prison camp, or a conscientious objector, or a young boy who thought enlisting would be a chance to prove himself...Terkel interviewed people from all walks of life. Each story is unique and yet, yet hauntingly similar. You hear of young men losing their sense of humanity in the face of unimaginable cruelty: a man remembers watching his comrade in arms throw pebbles into the open skull of a dead Japanese soldier; the smell of cooking cats. Other young men speak of hiding their sexual orientation while trying to appear manly enough for battle (Ted Allenby's story reminded me of Ryan O'Callaghan a great deal). But, you also hear from the women: wives and girlfriends left behind, Red Cross nurses on the front lines, even singers sent to entertain the troops. It is easy to see why this stunning nonfiction won a Pulitzer. ( )

Fantastic collection of interviews and narratives about world war 2. They humanize and personalize this part of history in a way that I didn't know I had been missing. At various times they're depressing, frustrating, sometimes inspiring- and always interesting. There is plenty of variety, with voices from different peoples and parts of society, though that just makes me want to hear and have even more represented. With so much to think about it required pacing myself and reading in smaller amounts at a time. ( )

If I had to recommend one book on WWII, this would be it. The Good War contains short, personal, first-hand viewpoints of the war from just about every possible perspective. ( )

Another great book, and I speak as a Brit, whose dad served in WW2 ( )

In memory, we find the most complete release from the narrowness of presented time and place. ... The picture is one of human beings confronted by a world in which they can be masters only as they ... discover ways of escape from the complete sway of immediate circumstances. -- F.C. Bartlett, Remembering
What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine?
What did you learn in school today, dear little boy of mine?
I learned that war is not so bad
I learned about the great ones we have had
We fought in Germany and in France
And I am someday to get my chance
That's what I learned in school today
That's what I learned in school.
-- A song by Tom Paxton
